“You need not to rush for happy hours or make a call at bar to “Punch” it for you before happy hours end because if you love to drink in quantity or you are in a group… it will cost you nearly the same or cheap as happy hours… anytime of the day (night included )!!!”
Located in Phoenix market city, this place belongs to Bellona Hosp. I would not say it is a sprawling place but not very congested as well. One can opt for open air seating in the balcony overlooking the courtyard else there is a dim lighten, neon’ish blue ambient hall (night time) with loud music which one can go for. Here; seating is available where variable sized groups ranging from 8 to 12 can be accommodated.
Alcohols (Whisky/Rum/Vodka/Jin etc) are categorized as Popular, Premium, Luxury including major IMFL and Imported brands.
Beer bandwidth is narrower though popular brands are available.
Wines are there in menu but “Made in India” are not amongst top five. There are a few imported good quality wins as well.
What I loved about the place is giving the guest option to drink less but pay more or drink more but pay less. They measure by 30 ml and if you buy 1 measurement of whisky “ABC” of Premium category you pay Rs240 each but if you buy 6 you pay Rs200 each and if you buy 12 you pay Rs175 each.
Good collection in food menu (not very wide though but the cuisine selection is really wide); including finger licking finger food as well as full meals with concept “Tiffin”.
Munch’ers would surely like “Popcorn concept” which is easy to “pop in” type while drinking; served with a dip. Not to forget shrimps, pork, fish, corn and potato… twist of taste Mysore Wada popcorn (made from Udad dal).
Potato based tasteful snacks including “Do It Yourself” type fries, “Tikkies”, Loaded Potato Skins etc available.
Toasties with different toppings, Paratha Rolls/Wraps with filling of a few types and amazing egg preparations are the key.
Not to forget meals aka “the Tiffins” which are served in conventional lunch pack also known as “dabba” … nice concept and I loved it. Worth mentioning “Stanley Ka Dabba” with authentic Goan curry and rice and “The Lucy Liu Tiffin” with wok-tossed Kung Pau Chicken, Fried Rice, Fried wontons and Veg Manchurian.
“Tasteful food; no doubt about it!!!”
Some good cocktails I tasted (few spoons for tasting purpose) which were served in unconventional jars.
Overall… Nice place for fluid lovers who also want to enjoy food!

***It was an invitation for F&B tasting and I did not pay for food. Beer was out of bound and I paid for my beer alone.
